Got questions? That’s ok! Let’s tackle some of the most common ones….
Will AmpliFi work on any connection?AmpliFi is only a router and doesn’t have a DSL port built-in, so it can’t be used as a modem. It will, however, work on any Ethernet WAN service such as Pentanet Fixed Wireless, LBN, NBN FTTP, FTTC and HFC.
What if I’m on FTTN/B?No stress! If you have an existing modem, turn bridge mode on and your AmpliFi will take care of the rest. Did we mention it’s pretty clever?
What makes the AmpliFi better than my current router?Everything! Jokes aside, we’re serious. AmpliFi does have some pretty nifty features. Everything you do with AmpliFi is all done within its super slick app.
